Yosemite in Winter

Made a winter photo excursion to Yosemite in the middle of December hoping for some snow. I took my 8×10 camera and was going to make this my maiden voyage so to speak with her. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. The four days seemed promising as my buddy and I prepared for the trip. There were forecasts for lots of snow which was going to be amazing. Instead, we got rain. Lots and lots of it. It rained for 24 hours straight, so much so that the valley was flooded and they closed the park down for a day. Luckily we hadn’t planned to leave that day so that wasn’t an issue. It did put a damper on our snow photos though!

I didn’t want to put up my 8×10 in the rain so I stuck to my Polaroid SLR680 instead. Amazingly enough, I got some wonderful shots of the foggy raining weather and love the results! I was able to finally set up my 8×10 on our final day and expose 7 sheets of film. I’ve since had them processed and am pleased with the results. Now to figure out a good scanning method until I can get into a traditional darkroom for some contact prints!
